This is not my typical devotion, but is weighing heavy on my heart so I wanted to share it. We all face overwhelming challenges in life and this is one that a young woman is currently facing.
Matthew 25:35-40 (KJV)
'For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.' "Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You drink? 'And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 'And when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?' "And the King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.'
These are the words of Jesus, when we help others we are helping Jesus. Reach out if you can and help others with what you have available to you.
A dear friend of our family and a dear friend to so many other people, Pam Hobby Clark, of Satellite Beach, FL, passed away Saturday morning leaving behind a daughter Kaci and a granddaughter Emilly. Anyone who knew Pam knew she was a loving, sweet and giving person. She modeled a servant of Christ as she gave out of her heart. I wanted to share the information passed along from her church.
Friends of Our Dear Pam: It is with all sadness that we tell you that Pam, unexpectedly, left this earth for Gods kingdom on Saturday morning. She leaves behind her daughter Kaci and Grand daughter Emily. Services will be held at Trinity Presbyterian Church, in Satellite Beach, FL, on Saturday April 20th at 2:00. A Reception will follow in lobby. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the �Pam Clark Fund� that will 100% benefit her Daughter and Granddaughter�s future. Trinity Presbyterian Church is located at 638 S Patrick Dr, Satellite Beach, FL 32937; phone number (321) 777-2047; email firstname.lastname@example.org ; website www dot TrinityPres dot net
Kaci and Emily were everything to Pam. Kaci is a single mom raising her daughter Emily. Pam, Kaci and Emily lived together helping one another. Pam was retired on disability and her income with Kaci�s income helped meet the household needs. Pam also watched after her granddaughter Emily while Kaci worked. They have always been very close to each other and depended upon one another; they were each other�s support system.
Sadly Saturday morning Kaci knew something wasn�t right when she didn�t hear her mother. She went in to check on her and found that she had unexpectedly passed away in her sleep. It was a horrific way to start a Saturday morning. Kaci was doing her best to handle such an ordeal, but she wasn�t reaching out for help. Asked if she would call someone to assist her, she said,� I just can�t say the words.� So she provided names and numbers for someone to call for her. As friends and church members were called, it was then that God�s loved was poured out as people came forward to help. Kaci and Emily were left with very little; no insurance, and no extra funds and they have lost part of their support system -- their sweet, dear mother and grandmother.
At 32 Kaci is a strong women, but being a single mom and no family close by to help she is going to need prayers and any help she can obtain to take care of herself and her daughter. The church is reaching out to help. If anyone is so inclined to help Kaci and Emily -contact Trinity Presbyterian Church at the contact information above.
